The Torah places special emphasis on widows and orphans.

Which is why they are our #1 priority

Chesed Menachem Mendel Orphan Intervention

The Torah underscores the profound importance of caring for society’s most vulnerable: widows and orphans. Aligned with this eternal directive, Colel Chabad has made it their mission to offer unwavering support to these vulnerable groups in Israel. We do so with various charitable programs for widows and orphans that desperately need your donations and help.

Transforming the Lives of Orphaned Children in Israel

Regardless of socio-economic background, countless orphans throughout Israel grapple with unique challenges. The void left by the loss of a parent exposes them to heightened risks of emotional distress and academic setbacks. Such adversities can have far-reaching consequences, affecting their holistic growth and potential in life.

Redefining Orphan Intervention: Chesed Menachem Mendel

Did you know that historically, fatherless children have the highest rate of dropping out and academic failure? Chesed Menachem Mendel is blazing new trails to alter this unacceptable statistic radically.

The Chesed Menachem Mendel Orphan Intervention Program was born in response to this pressing need. Named in honor of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, renowned for his deep affection for children, the program stands as a beacon of hope for countless orphans. Moving beyond conventional solutions, it adopts a tailored approach, addressing the unique needs of every child it serves.

The comprehensive strategy encompasses the following:

  • Psychological assessments and therapy to heal emotional wounds
  • Active collaboration with educators to tailor learning solutions
  • Remedial teaching for academic gaps
  • Big Brother or Big Sister companionship programs for emotional support
  • Summer camps to foster growth in a fun environment
  • Music and art lessons to channel emotions and discover talents

Jewish Children’s Orphan Donations: The Impact of Your Support

Through its unwavering dedication, Colel Chabad has forged a path of change for hundreds of young lives. The organization provides a nurturing embrace to over 327 young widows and aids 949 orphaned children. Unlike many of their counterparts, these children thrive academically and build meaningful connections, dispelling the common myth that early parental loss condemns one to a compromised future.

The Journey Ahead for Orphans in Israel

While significant strides have been made, there remains an extensive road ahead. The multifaceted challenges that widows and orphaned children face—including social isolation and academic struggles—require continuous and evolving solutions. The costs of delivering such comprehensive services, especially specialized therapy and enrichment activities, remain high. 

Now, the onus is on expanding and deepening the scope of interventions to reach out to even more in need.
